World at cusp of ushering India era as we gain developed status: NK Singh

The world is at the cusp of ushering in an India era as the country's growth trajectory moves towards a developed nation status by 2047, leading economist and policymaker N K Singh has said. In his address on being conferred a prestigious Honorary Fellowship at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Wednesday evening, the President of the Institute of Economic Growth said he was humbled to be joining the ranks of fellow Indians such as Nobel laureate Professor Amartya Sen and former president K R Narayanan.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi noted on Saturday that criminals have been using the latest technology for funding and operating across regions as he called for rethinking, reimagining and reforming legal systems to deliver justice.

India pushed for dialogue, diplomacy as conflicts raged around world in '23

As wars and conflicts raged around the world this year, India pressed for dialogue and diplomacy to resolve them and gave a consistent clarion call for reformed multilateralism amid failures by a polarised UN Security Council to maintain international peace. India, which became the world's most populous country in 2023, emerged as the voice of the Global South as it presided over the G20, the grouping of the world's largest economies, throughout the year. At a time when the world, as External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar pointed out, was witnessing sharp East-West polarisation and deep North-South divides, India brought its G20 thematic message of One Earth, One family, One Future' to the global stage, including at the United Nations.
